    Add the stock email app, LG calendar widget and the Dual Clock widget to the list. I removed them, and nothing has given me an error yet so that is good. Still looking to remove the LG launcher though, maybe someone has done it and lived to tell about it LOL:icon_ banana:

    Great work!

    Could you give a quick write up of exactly how you removed those files?

    Did you just remove the apks?

    I want to tweak my girlfriends ally, and I too am interested in porting over some droid apks..

    Thanks!

    I'm having trouble. I have "unistalled" myspace app with Titanium a few times, but it never goes anywhere. When I launch the app drawer it's always still there. Even after a reboot. Any thoughts?

    I used z4root. I was able to uninstall a whole bunch of other apps as well. Myspace seems to be the only one that is giving me trouble.

    Maybe its different for each kind of phone. I've managed to root my phone with z4root and in titanium backup the first thing I removed was myspace and then skype and facebook and the useless apps that run in background

    uninstall

    No worries....I havent removed any yet! Got the phone rooted then was unsure how to proceed. Looks like I need Titanium to find a UNINSTALL option for the apps. Astro does not seem to have an UNINSTALL option.
    I tired to download titanium off my pc but looks like I will pay at the market. I have titanium saved on my sd card but cant access the sd card on my ally.
    I was planning to remover skype (cos it runs all the time and I turn it off), amazon, facebook, my space, citybook...not sure about Back Up Assistant?

    Guess I will pay at the market and get titanium. If anyone knows any free ways to get titanium or tips for uninstalls, would be appreciated

    Can't discuss pirating apps here. If you would like a less expensive way to do what you're trying to do, I believe Root Explorer is $2-$3? in the market. You can actually rename the apps and reboot and the phone won't see them so they won't run or open. I'd recommend making a backup before doing anything of course...just in case.

    Lol

    I broke down and paid for root explorer...LOL Now I have to figure oput how to work it. I have figured out one view is Read only. Also, the files are not in a name like "Amazon" so afraid I am going to delete sumpin important. How do I make the files show up as Skype, Amazon, etc?

    I deleted a few apps using Terminal Emulator by writing commands but it is a bit tediuous. Also there are file listed list like hidden verizon files
    I fot Terminal emulator off the market free. Command to get started is ..OK...su...OK....mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3/system OK
    ls /system/app

    To remove an app: rm /system/app/app name as typed in list
    (spaces are important)
    Then all the apps pop up/files. The files are also not in the name we would recognize in many cases but did get utube and skype...amazon is giving me issues. What is verizon hidden files?

    Anyway. Gotta be an easier way than tedious typing as screen is small? (>%
